The pattern is Simplicity 2369, which makes a knit wrap dress at three different lengths and with different sleeve variations.

The fabric is a lightweight (and very soft) gray jersey with a fine yellow paisley printed on it.

My only modification was to make it a touch shorter, and adjust the bust-to-waist ratio a bit, because I do not have the average cup size for my waist.  I think it came out really cute, and will work particularly well with some leggings this winter.

Now I get to work on a tunic-length one for a gift.

Blogged here.

Very cute dress!
I'm sure it will be adorable with leggings. ^_^

I so need to get back on the making my own stuff wagon, I have to adjust clothes I buy all the time for the same reason. *chuckles*

I'm bringing sexy back, I think I dropped it somewhere between the donut shop and the Cheesecake Factory.

That's so pretty! You did a really great job. I love that fabric too- you're right, it will look really cute with leggings during winter months!

Ooh! I love it. Nice work and very flattering fit. I think I need to try to make one of these for myself, since I have a similar figure. Thank you for sharing this. Love it!

Thanks everyone! I'm quite happy with this dress, and am almost done with a shirt made off the same pattern.  Yay sewing.
